About Step On Up

Step On Up is a program developed by Pfizer in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association to encourage people living with diabetes and experiencing shooting, burning, or stabbing pain in their feet or hands to talk to their doctor about their pain. If you are experiencing this type of pain and have diabetes, it could be due to nerve damage. Nerve damage caused by diabetes can lead to pain, called diabetic nerve pain. This is a real condition that affects 1 in 5 people living with diabetes. If you think you might have diabetic nerve pain, complete our Diabetic Nerve Pain Assessment and schedule time to discuss the answers with your doctor. We hope after reading some of the material you find here on this site, you will be encouraged to Step On Up and have a real conversation with your doctor about your diabetic nerve pain.
